Yarndale 2014

Northern England is beautiful. If you haven’t been to Yorkshire or Cumbria or the surrounding areas we strongly recommend you go! And if it just happens to be on the weekend of one of the many fabulous knitting shows found in that part of the country, hey, who can blame you if you swing by? You’re there for the scenery right? And maybe just a little bit for the fluff… We won’t tell if you don’t.

We went to Skipton the weekend before last and it was fabulous as always. The weather was spectacular, our journey there was easy (no nearly running out of petrol this time), we met with our lovely friends from County Alpacas and the Yarndale show was bigger and better than last year! It couldn’t get much better!

 The queue to get into the show on Saturday morning was even longer than last year and doubled back on itself. However, the show seemed much better organised. They were prepared for the crowds, catering and toilet facilities were improved and we didn’t hear any complaints about traffic or parking issues.

 This is Ross. Last year she bought the Iago kit and she has done a marvelous job of making it! Well done, Ross!

 This isn’t one of our designs, but we thought this little Toft elephant was so cute, we had to show him off. Their book, Edwards Menagerie is great for crocheters and amigurumi fans!

This is the lovely Meghan. She made Isis since last year and she looked fabulous wearing it! Every time she came onto our stand we’d sell another kit. We should pay her commission.

Thank you to Yarndale for yet another fabulous show, we had a blast! And thank you to all you fabulous knitters for coming to see us on the stand, showing us what you had made, telling us about your experience with our kits and just saying hi! We had a fabulous time and look forward to seeing you again next year!
